The man at the lunch counter...
is none other than Jose "Chegui" Torres, one of the most famous boxers from Puerto Rico. He was a light-heavyweight in the years that included the titans of boxing, including a very young Cassius Clay! That was a cameo if I ever saw one!

Excellent 1970 film, giving a good image to Puerto Ricians who have settled in the states. The acting was very natural. Well directed, written and filmed.

Excellent for multi-cultural studies.
Miguel is a model for raising self esteem among all ethnic group youngsters! Thanks Bert Salzman for your most sympathetic film.

Another example of my generation
The generation that participated in the american dream by actually becoming part of it, instead of the present wave of immigrants that practice cultural isolationism, hanging flags of the country on their rear view mirrors of the country that was so bad they had to leave, strange. Interesting blend of environmentalism and multiculturalism... hmmm. Looking for a pattern here.
